    he can't stop the war machine.  

    He's been given the position of most powerful man in the world, and he can't even cut the beyond obscene spending on war and death enough to protect the poor and the elderly just a little.  They're already getting a pittance.  Their cost of living increases already do not factor in one of their biggest expenses -- health care and medicines.  It's already a shitty deal for them.  But he can't even bother himself enough to protect the sick, the elderly, the poor from the greed, the criminal bankers, the insane warmongers, the sick and disgusting death contractors.  He can't be bothered.  It's so much easier to side with the ideologues and billionaires.  If he ever was a good man, he's clearly sold his soul.

    But he will be fine.  He and his family are set for life.  So what's the big deal?  He can just continue to spend billions in campaign money and use god knows how much taxpayer money to bolster his image in his marketing campaign.  And his loyal fans can just continue to constantly attack anyone who criticizes him.  He can hire or get cronies to write flowery books about him.  He'll be fine.  Nevermind the millions of people who he has hurt.

    •  Exactly, joanneleon (8+ / 0-)

      he continues the war machine-so much for getting serious about climate change via the carbon burning pentagon.

      And this was a self induced crisis we are still dealing with from 2010. This is a self induced Shock Doctrine scenario the POTUS created to push his Rubinite craponomic lies to put his cabinet in lobbyists positions when his term is up.

      He doesn't care about us. He'll be just fine.

    •  Best president EVAH! (4+ / 0-)

      I am recalling one of those Obama cheerleaders who dropped in here with a smiley photo of Obama, and all their followers who quickly dropped in to rec their post.

      But reality doth suck.....

      He's been given the position of most powerful man in the world, and he can't even cut the beyond obscene spending on war and death enough to protect the poor and the elderly just a little.  
      Damn, if this is the work of the best president ever, what awaits us in the 4 years?

      How many of the Obama Democrats will be left, those true believers who just know that if Obama does, well, damn, you fools, it must be right.
